Thanks for the info MJ, the boat is a 2006 so I think the nipple is pretty good. It looks like its leaking from the front of the seal, maybe I should try to get more grease in there.

To others thanks but this unit has no nuts or locking nuts. Its a very simple system just using a rubber sleeve. There is a nipple on it attached to a thru-hull to keep it lubricated.
